Marvel Premiere #48 / Ant-Man - John Byrne art


Marvel Premiere v1 #48 featuring Ant-Man, 1979 - Concluding the premiere of the new Ant Man, the hero faces off against a behemoth to save his daughter's life. Hank Pym, the original Ant Man, makes a cameo appearance toward the end, endorsing his successor. John Byrne's artwork is larger than life, playing up contrasts in size and scale of the characters (see interior page below). The opening splash and numerous large panels exceed the quality of his previous issue. As before, Bob Layton's inking is exceptional. This is number 3 of 3 Marvel Premiere issues with Byrne art and/or covers.
